Native american holocaust day it is to some, so don't offend anyone.

The vikings were here 400 years before columbus came so scratch that off columbus day, shit people were already hear after crossing the berring straight during the ice age.

God cannot be proven to exist in high school debate so don't try that merry christmas shit either.

4th of july is offensive to british people and arbor day offends slash and burn deforrestors in south america.

New years day occurs on our biased eurocentric calender and so it should be ignored, aside from the obvious offense to people who happened to like the previous year.

Ground hog day is a stupid pagan ritual of superstitiion and should be abolished.

Halloween may cause trick or treating which may scare haitians at school so dressing up should be outlawed. I know this first hand.

My birthday just makes me depressed, plus the koreans start counting age at conception (which makes them pro life nazi's) so stop that nonsense as well.

Memorial day celebrates the wasted lives of warmongers and should be scratched off the calendar as well.

Easter is offensive to jews and muslims, plus you don't get a day off so I scratched that one off years ago.

St patick's day is cruelty bias towards snakes and promotes drunkeness, gone.

President's day is phony blend of washington and lincoln's birthdays, both dead, both white, both men, offensive as hell.

Martin luther king day is offensive to senator byrd and now his dream is fulfilled we can scratch that one off as well.

Cinco de mayo is too noisy and festive and last time I drank way too much tequilla and ate too many tacos and well you can guess the rest...

So stop the celebration of these offensive and politically charged blasphemies.

I will not respond to any insults by the way.

Have a great Tuesday (norse god of warday)

#101: Being Offended

To be offended is usually a rather unpleasant experience, one that can expose a person to intolerance, cultural misunderstandings, and even evoke the scars of the past. This is such an unpleasant experience that many people develop a thick skin and try to only be offended in the most egregious and awful situations. In many circumstances, they can allow smaller offenses to slip by as fighting them is a waste of time and energy. But white people, blessed with both time and energy, are not these kind of people. In fact there are few things white people love more than being offended.

Naturally, white people do not get offended by statements directed at white people. In fact, they don’t even have a problem making offensive statements about other white people (ask a white person about “flyover states”). As a rule, white people strongly prefer to get offended on behalf of other people.

It is also valuable to know that white people spend a significant portion of their time preparing for the moment when they will be offended. They read magazines, books, and watch documentaries all in hopes that one day they will encounter a person who will say something offensive. When this happens, they can leap into action with quotes, statistics, and historical examples. Once they have finished lecturing another white person about how it’s wrong to use the term “black” instead of “African-American,” they can sit back and relax in the knowledge that they have made a difference.

White people also get excited at the opportunity to be offended at things that are sexist and/or homophobic. Both cases offering ample opportunities for lectures, complaints, graduate classes, lengthy discussions and workshops. All of which do an excellent job of raising awareness among white people who hope to change their status from “not racist” to “super not racist.”

Another thing worth noting is that the threshold for being offended is a very important tool for judging and ranking white people. Missing an opportunity to be outraged is like missing a reference to Derrida-it’s social death.

If you ever need to make a white person feel indebted to you, wait for them to mention a book, film, or television show that features a character who is the same race as you, then say “the representation of was offensive and if you can’t see that, well, you need to do some soul searching.” After they return from their hastily booked trip to land of your ancestors, they will be desperate to make it up to you. At this point, it is acceptable to ask them to help you paint your house.

Dear Sir,

I wish to complain in the strongest possible terms about the post which you have just broadcast, about the white guy who wears women's clothes. Many of my best friends are white guys, and only a few of them are transvestites.

Yours faithfully,

Brigadier Sir Charles Arthur Strong (Mrs)

"Martin luther king day is offensive to senator byrd and now his dream is fulfilled we can scratch that one off as well".

Face it, Senator Byrd denounced that part of his past many years ago.
All of those who did not, joined the GOP back in the mid sixties.

Let it go, I thought you were going to get help or something.

Yes, I went to a clockwork orange seminar but they failed to remove my sense of humor, I see the process worked better for you. Everything else was apparently true and valid though that is the ironic part!

Oops I fed a troll again

Fortunately, I bought troll carbon credits with this song.
